After the United States’ Ryder Cup win last weekend, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, and Phil Mickelson boarded a flight in Minnesota to deliver the trophy to Palmer’s memorial service in his hometown of Latrobe, Pennsylvania. It was widely received as a really nice gesture to honor the King, especially since the three were likely battling roaring celebratory hangovers.

One Twitter egg thought that the motive for the golfers’ ¬†delivering the cup was solely to bring attention on themselves and their Ryder Cup victory. Fowler was quick to stomp the troll out.

I think this dude’s onto something…
